Dress Up As A Vampire
Why does not go old-school with the traditional bloodsucker from Transylvania? Use a foundation in a shade that is lighter than your skin. Then apply a matte translucent powder to make your skin flawless and pale. Then, create blood dribbles coming out of the corners of your mouth with either a liquid stain or red lipstick. Fill up the eyebrows with dark brown or black pencils for an exaggerated appearance. Use lots of mascara on the outer half of the lashes.
You will definitely put a smile on everyone’s faces when you dress up as the joker from Joaquin Pheonix’s Joker movie. Get a neon green wig and put on the right makeup and you are all set.
